Cheddar is a live Post-Cable Network covering the headline and business news that is transforming our lives. Cheddar’s team is growing, products are diversifying, and infrastructure is become more complex - at a very fast pace. We’re looking for an experienced project manager to oversee a diverse portfolio of projects that helps our team work together to execute on their objectives amidst the rapid change.
The right candidate will have a experience managing projects involving the technologies that media companies employ to produce, monetize and distribute our content (ad servers, content management systems, mobile apps, social channels, live-streaming and distribution technologies.)
The project manager must be relentless in her/his pursuit of moving projects to a successful completion. This means the ability to take complex concepts and break them into executable components, speaking in a language that all stakeholders understand, managing conflicts/constraints swiftly, identifying potential issues before they negatively impact the project and do so while navigating a high-pressure environment.
The successful candidate must be a self-starter and a leader - someone who drives results and inspires others to take action.
Break down complex projects into a feasible plan that achieves the goals and objectives of the project and aligns with the organization’s overall business strategy.
Assign team tasks and deadlines, give teams the tools to collaborate while not micromanaging every activity.
Report on project progress, offers viable solutions and opportunities as they arise
Lead effective meetings to chart progress and remove obstacles
Be in constant communications with project team members, being open to feedback to keep them productive and happy and coming back to you with future projects.
